3D Ice Blocks Photoshop Tutorial

In this Photoshop Tutorial Easy-Psd will show you how to create abstract ice blocks background . For the start we need a big rectangular document ( I used like 1200x1200).
We need this big because in the end we will use just 1/4 of the original size. Press "D" to put the foreground color to black and the background color to white. Now just apply Filter-Render-Clouds.The image got some very dark areas so we will modify the levels . Press Ctrl+L and apply the settings like in the image below:
Now will come the nice part. With just a few clicks we will obtain an amazing effect. Go to Filter-Stylize-Extrude and select "Blocks" with 40 pixel size and 40 Depth. You will get something like this:
For the Ice Blocks to look more real we need to change the color. For this we will press Ctrl+U and we will play around with the options until we get a light blue color.
Now hit Ctrl+F to apply the last filter again and you will get an abstract ice block image. I think the image look good but for a better visual effect I decided to cut of a half of the image because of the extrude filter. After cutting out 1/4 of the image i got something like this:

Speed Fire Car

In this tutorial Easy-Psd will show you how to create a speed fire car with Adobe Photoshop.

For this tutorial we need a picture with a car , but the background of the image must be white. Another think we need is a fire background picture.I found this background on google:Now find the image with the car. Don't forget about the white Background . I decided to use this picture because I love BMW :)For this tutorial we will use maybe an unusual thing. Open the image with the car , select the whole layer (Ctrl+A) and go to Edit-Define Brush Present and define the whole layer as a brush.
Now create a new document(Ctrl+N). Choose any size you want but I recommend something like 800x800 or 1000x1000. Set the background color of the new document to black. Now create a new layer on the black document(Shift+Ctrl+N) , and from brushes select the earlier defined brush and apply it with a white color. You should obtain something like this:Create a new layer(Shift+Ctrl+N) and on this layer apply the fire background (Open the fire background document , press Ctrl+A , Ctrl+C and on the car document , on the new layer press Ctrl+V .Put the layer mod to Overlay . You should obtain something like this:Now right click on the layer where you applied the brush and go to Blending Options and apply the following settings:
For the Outer Glow the color is #ff0000.
For the Inner Glow the color is #ffa800.I think that the image already look very nice but we can still improve it.Go on the layer with the brush and duplicate it ( Layer-Duplicate Layer). Now your layer pallet should look like this:
Now on the "Layer 2" we will add some filters. Go to Filter-Stylize-Wind From the Left and add this filter.To repeat the filter , hit 2 or 3 times Ctrl+F. Another filter will be Filter-Blur-Motion Blur and apply it with a 90 Angle and a Distance of 10 pixels.You should obtain something like this:
Now the image is ready. You can also add some text with the same Blending Options like the one used for the car .If you like this tutorial please share it with your friends by clicking on the links below.For any questions just post here a comment.

Glowing Heart

In this Photoshop Tutorial , Easy-Psd will teach you how to create a glowing shape based on a primary shape .
First of all create a new big size image with black background. In the left menu click on Custom Shape Tool(U) and draw a shape you want to make , but don't make the shape too big because it will be hard to handle . I selected a heart.
Now that you made your shape , go to Pen Tool (P) , right click on the shape and click Make Selection . Now that the area are selected fill in with a color.Now create a new layer (Shift+Ctrl+N) , and install this brush pack. Now with one of the new brushes and with white color draw a brush with the size bigger then the shape you selected.Now you have to make the brush take the shape you want . For this heart is enough to make half of it because it's symmetrical . Press Ctrl+T for transform and Right Click on it to rotate it in the position you want .Now make it look better and take the shape you want . For this , press Ctrl+T , right click on it and click on Warp. Play around with the image until you get something like this :
For a better accuracy , you have to warp it more then once. After the second warp and the image look like this:The image still don't look like i want so i will warp it again (Ctrl+T then right click and select warp).Now the hard part is over . Hide the layer with the background and select the new layers content ( Ctrl+A ) and copy the selected area ( Ctrl+C). Then create a new file (Ctrl+N) then paste (Ctrl+V) . On the top menu , go to Image-Rotate Canvas-Flip Canvaz Horizontal. Select the resulting image ( Ctrl+A) , then copy it (Ctrl+C) and paste it on your first document.Make the background visible again and move the pasted area like in the image below.

Now you can make your background image black because you don't need the original shape now . Hide the brushed layers and on the background image fill everything black(Alt+Backspace).Now make the layers visible again and select the layer 3 and merge it down (Ctrl+E) . Now your image should look like this:The image is already done now you just have to add some color. Create a new layer ( Shift+Ctrl+N) and brush some color around the shape then set the layer mode to Overlay.
The image is ready. If you like this tutorial please share it with your friends by clicking on the links below.For any questions just post here a comment.
